In fact, he’s in for a good few months. He and Sandstorm will be sharing a paddock for the foreseeable future.
For the foreseeable future? Certainly! It may not be the usual practice these days, but I can’t think of a way to keep a stallion happier than to let him have a companion. Some, like Tuetano, get along with certain geldings — in fact, our Tuetano and Crackerjack co-exist quite nicely. Many, including Insider, are quite civil and content in the presence of a bred mare.
Like many breeders, we at In the Night Farm are taking care to avoid a surplus of unwanted foals in these tight economic times. Luckily for Insider, an individual commissioned this breeding, which will lead to our only 2009 foal. We’re expecting a winner!
